Synopsis: This book draws attention to the problems and issues surrounding fast-growing tourism in the highly sensitive wilderness areas of polar regions. The authors, both widely experienced in the practicalities of marine, land and heritage based polar tourism, discuss mainly polar issues, but their conclusions and management techniques apply equally to all environmentally sensitive areas throughout the world.

Dr Bernard Stonehouse has spent four winters and many summers in Antarctic and sub-Antarctic environments, conducting ecological and behavioural research on birds and mammals, and the impacts of man on flora, fauna and soils. His most recent research includes an 18-year study of the growth, development, environmental implications and management of Antarctic tourism.
Dr John M. Snyder gained wilderness tourism experience as an Alaska Registered Guide and has applied his environmental management knowledge to assist Arctic governments and Native People. Those experiences were then used to evaluate tourism management issues in Antarctica and South Georgia.
